9 Years 7 Weeks 2 Days

TurtlesIs turtelina.net old today. ➡ Hard to believe! And that doesnt even include the years I spent on Geocities… *shudders* I still enjoy my domain a lot and once I have more time I will bring the Portal back. I have some ideas for it. *bounces* It needs to get rid of all the Trojans that were planted there though.

This week the big turtle I bought a while ago, found a new little friend. I think together they are the most hilarious things! 😎 Such posers they are!

We also decided, that we want to redo the house completely. It will take time, especially as everything is so expensive these days, but its something to look forward to. We will repaint, new floors, move and replace the furniture, its going to be extremely satisfying, healthy and exciting. Most important: healthy. Moving on, letting go. Who kew this would be so very hard. *sigh*

Before I forget, some good links worth checking out, some more important than others:

On Tuesday, I finally received a letter from the Social Services Departement. The final result is in:

I got a disability of 60%! I really enjoyed seeing everyones jaw drop when I told them. In the beginning some people couldnt understand why I should receive a disability card. And now, did I not only receive it, I also got a pretty high disability grade. Everything beyond 50% means I am severely disabled. I got 50% for the therapy-resistant atopical ekzema and 30% for my Asthma. The disability card will come in useful in a variety of ways, but most important is that I cannot be fired that easily anymore. I also cannot be expected to do any extra work, 570 Euros tax refund / year (which would be an Ipad) and so on. But we will see how the reality of that all will be. Oh, and one more week of vacation / year. 😆

On Wednesday, I had a control appointment at the hospital. The doctor said that I should go into Rehab as soon as possible. So this coming Wednesday I have an appointement to talk with the Chef of our health insurance, because he is the man to make pressure so that I can go as fast as possible. But I am not sure that I want to. Uni is starting again soon, too… I signed up for a Jiddish course. :mrgreen: Its annoying as hell, maybe I can go over Christmas…

The rest of the week is a big blur. The weather was awful ❗ , I worked and slept, worked and slept… Nothing new in the other departments. Lets see what this week will bring. Have a good one everyone! smooches

    I’m finding this British Name Generator hilarious! True, we do drink a lot of tea! But we don’t talk like that :P. I also put my name in and got ‘Chelsea Milner’. I don’t know anyone called Chelsea, heh 😀

    The music tips were really helpful too, although I am still working hard to be POSITIVE rather than NEGATIVE.

    Good luck with redecorating the house 🙂

    I’m VERY pleased that you managed to get your disability card: hopefully this will really help you. 🙂 xx

    @Nicki: I wonder if everyone is called Milner. ❓ Maybe Chelsea is more American than British? Funny thing is, that my Dad actually wanted to call me Amelia, after his aunt. 😕 The text on that generator page is actually pretty funny! You gave us the Spice Girls, and I loved them to death! Who didnt?!

    I should really watch the US Open. But I bet Federer is going to beat our player again, as so often. Are you still watching Tennis quite a bit?

    I found the music tips from Adam Rafferty so helpful because I think ge is a brilliant guitar player and that he still has the same thoughts and feelings that we do, at that level, is incredible!

    Did you check the Breast Cancer Posters?

    Thank you Nicki! xxx ➡

    There is an English football called James Milner, but that’s the only Milner which I can think of.

    I like the name Amelia: it reminds me of the name Amelie which I also like 🙂

    I can’t watch the tennis as it is only available to watch on a pay-to-view channel. However, I am just about to listen to Andy Murray play Wawrinka.

    Yes – it’s nice to know that all musicians struggle with the same things. A similar thing is a book called ‘The Inner Game of Music’ which is very useful (http://www.amazon.co.uk/Inner-Game-Music-Timothy-Gallwey/dp/0330300172/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1283712921&sr=8-1)

    I did check the breast cancer posters and thought they were very clever.

    My British name is Lucy Gladstone! Ha! Ha!

    I’m happy the disability card came through. A good clean out & renovation is bound to work on mental/emotional levels too. Which reminds me I’m late on my spring cleaning.

    Murray lost & stupid TV station here cut off the match at the last 2 games so they could resume regular programming! GGgrrrrrr!

    Happy week ahead Connie!

    Here comes — Charlotte Butcher – somehow they must know that 4 or 5 of my exes were butchers 😉

    Chelsea is for me always Chelsea Clinton which got recently married and I always remember her with her braces – poor girl.

    I am glad too the thing with the disability card went through – even I am not allowed to be disabled – people would never believe it too if I once will get one – and the more I break down the higher the possibility I will once get one 😉

    I don’t like tennis and can’t stand Federer but the boss of my sister adores him and they always watch in the shop where they work *smile*

    Take good care you all!

    @Nicki: Oh Nicki, you keep mentioning that book since years and I know I always said I would get it and I never did. I am going to add it to my shopping cart NOW so that when I next order from Amazon, I wont forget it. 💡 See, I didnt even notice that you wrote British Football instead of Footballer. I like the British Football version better. 😐 hehe Amelie sounds so pretty! ➡ I hope you had a lovely evening yesterday, it sounded really nice on Facebook. HUGS

    @Lucy: Hello Lucy, ➡ Lucy Gladstone sounds like one of these names that would really fit into a TV-Show. 🙂 Oh hang on, wasnt there a Gladstone somewhere? *thinks* Full House! :mrgreen: Isnt that so annoying when TV stations do that? They do that here too, mostly to bring the 15th rerun of Fresh Prince. Incredible annoying! Thank you Lucy, for you too! ➡

    @Anu: Oh mein Gott, mit Charlotte Butcher gewinnst du. Der Name ist genial! 👿 Das du zu Metzger so hingezogen bist? Auch nicht uninteressant, oder vielleicht wars einfach Zufall, aber eigentlich glaube ich ja nicht an Zufälle. Ja genau. Mit Chelsea verbindet man einfach IMMER die Tochter von Clinton, ich habe ziemlich das gleiche Bild im Kopf, noch dazu hatte sie damals so “massive” Haare! Schlimm. Die hat sich gut gemacht eigentlich. Du würdest den Ausweis sicher auch kriegen. 50% sind bei dir immer drinnen. 💡

    Rofl – ich sehe mich schon als Serienkillerin (aber das tu ich ja sowieso schon seit 25 Jahren). Und das mir, die ich Fleisch nicht so besonders mag – bin jedoch keine Vegetarierin, schon gar nicht wegen den Tieren – mir schmeckt ja Essen grundsätzlich nicht.

    Die Haare hat sie immer noch 😉 Finde ich auch – auch Ivanka Trump scheint die komischen Eltern gut überlebt zu haben *lach*

    Nööö – hier gibt es keine psychischen Krankheiten mehr, da müsste ich schon viel, viel gestörter sein – und 50% sowieso nicht – wir haben hier ein extrem restriktives System seit ca. 5 Jahren, weil vorher jedem Simulant sein Rückenproblem gutgeheissen worden war. Was ich grundsätzlich befürworte. Ich bin auch froh, wenn ich noch arbeiten kann – doch es wäre halt schön, wenn jemand sagen würde: Sorry, sowas wie jetzt kann sie nicht machen, sonst ist sie über kurz oder lang nie mehr arbeitsfähig und das will die IV halt nicht hören – so gilt: Der Krug geht zum Brunnen bis er bricht.

    @Anu: Das Schweizer System kann doch gar nicht so anders sein als bei uns und in Deutschland, oder? Es gibt ja ganz klare Richtsätze nach denen sich die Gutachter richten müssen. Sprich, du hast das in der Schwere, also musst du soundsoviele Prozente kriegen. Kocht ihr wirklich so viele eigene Süppchen?

    Ja tun wir – als psychisch Kranker hast du kaum noch eine Chance ne IV-Rente zu bekommen – ausserdem gibts eh erst ab nem bestimmten Grad wirklich Rente – also bis x% musst du trotzdem 100% arbeiten.

    Seit dieser Reform sind auch x Fälle wieder als arbeitsfähig eingestuft worden – aller Arten von Krankheiten – doch bei der Wiederintegration hilft ihnen keiner – die stehen dann halt einfach irgendwann auf dem Soz – die Kosten bleiben also die gleichen, nur hat die eine Stelle abgebaut und die andere baut auf.

    Ganz genau kenne ich mich auch nicht aus – doch in der Branche, wo ich jetzt tätig bin, kriegen wir allerlei mit und ich könnte mich auch jederzeit von der Rentenabteilung informieren lassen – ehrlich gesagt, will ichs gar nicht so genau wissen und hoffe, dass ich weiterhin einigermassen fit bleibe.
    Ich bin seit Jahren Mitglied bei Pro Mente Sana, weil ich dadurch Rechtsbeistand bekomme, wenn es mal wirklich eng werden sollte.

    @Anu: Aber hier handelt es sich ja nicht um einen Invalidenausweis, das ist wieder was anderes. Oder ist Invalidenausweis und Schwerbehindertenausweis das Selbe, weiss ich gerade gar nicht. Aber sicher, ihr macht halt euer eigenes Ding. Normal finde ich das eh gut, aber in dem Fall… Drück Dich! ➡

    Schwerstbehindertenausweis gibt’s hier nicht – oder ich müsste mich sehr irren.
